Ryan Murphy talks “Glee” graduation, tributes
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: “Glee” fans – or “Gleeks” – looking for information on the hit show’s third season will want to read a new interview with series creator Ryan Murphy where he talks spinoffs, tribute episodes and much more.
The most interesting topic of the Q&A, though, is graduation, and whether stars Chris Colfer and Lea Michele will be written off of the show.
“The thing that I’m saying officially is, yes I do have a plan,” Murphy tells THR. “The great thing about season three is we’re writing toward something [the characters’ senior years in high school]. There is a conclusion, which is great for a writer. We literally just started [planning out the season]. So I don’t know for sure what will happen with those characters I love and everybody else has loved. We haven’t really made that decision. Some of the characters clearly have academic issues. Like Heather Morris’ Brittany I’m sure gets straight Fs. I would not be shocked to see her flunk. I love her.”
As for planned tribute episodes, Murphy says they are scaling them back, planning “only one with an artist they have been trying to land for two years.”
